Question about Toshiba 50H72 50" Rear Projection Television

Toshiba 50H72 Convergence IC's replaced now no picture

TV orginally had the bowed effect. I replaced both the STK392-110 IC's. I also checked the resistors and they checked out fine. However after replacing the IC's the power LED will come on solid red but there is no picture and I can't even get a picture when trying to bring up the menu. Any thoughts.
Thanks,
Tommy

When I originally removed the board with the convergence IC's I labeled all of the wiring harneses with number tape as I keep a multi number roll on hand as I am a radio broadcast engineer. However there was one set at the very back of the board behind a large heat sink I didn't label because that location was the only place they would fit. When replacing the board after replacing the IC's I missed that particular wiring harness as it didn't have numbers and I didn't see the harness laying among the other wiring. After removing the board to check my soldering work that's when I discovered the harness. I plugged that set in along with the rest, replaced the board, and after cleaning the CRTS's and the mirror the set worked good as new and a much sharper, cleaner picture. Thanks for the information on your forum as it always feels to repair something yourself and save a few hundred bucks to boot.

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Toshiba 50H72 have blue and yellow ghosts


Sounds like your convergence circuit went out. It lines up the red,green and blue picture tubes so the colors are lined up. Usually these TVs all use the same type of IC chips called "STKs" both usually get replaced along with any resistors etc.. around these chips that may have burned up. Depending on who fixes it could be around $300-400 parts and labor.

Toshiba 50h72 picture and sounds takes 20 min to warm up


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
